About Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine


Traditional Chinese Medicine is firmly grounded in the philosophical notions of being in harmony with nature, maintaining balance and exercising moderation.

It adopts an holistic view to diagnosis looking at factors such as how lifestyle, emotions, genetics, environment and constitution influence the health of a person. Believing ( much as in homoeopathy ) that each person should be treated individually even if diagnosed with the same disease.  It is the individual not the disease that should be treated.

The fundamental concepts in Traditional Chinese Medicine are Yin, Yang and Qi (pronounced 'chi'). As the root of all beings in the universe, Yin and Yang are interdependent and complementary forces that at the same time oppose and restrain each other. The aim of good health is to maintain an equilibrium between Yin and Yang. Qi is the life force flowing within the meridians the function of which is to regulate the spiritual, emotional, mental and physical aspects of a person. Illness is a result of Yin and Yang losing coordination, causing blockage in Qi flow and depleting nutritious substances such as Blood and Essence.


Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine uses a number of substances to make its medicine, including plants and animal parts.  GTH can supply energised remedies following the formulas laid down over many hundreds of years.  GTH Chinese Herbal Medicines are produced using the Sulis  Professional MK3 Remedy maker and not the individual material constituents so they are non toxic with no side effects
